UPDATED: The Zombie Apocalypse Will Not Be Motorized
It all started as a joke, but then turned into a shirt with your help! A few weeks ago, I made a spoof of a ZipCar ad that was poking fun at cyclists. Being a big zombie fan, I made a mock ad using an image from The Walking Dead. It got us thinking that in the event of the zombie apocalypse or any other disaster that called for mass evacuations, the bicycle is way to go! So we put up some mockups on Facebook and with input from our readers we have the final shirt design and its ready for sale! We’re using SpreadShirt as our printing and distribution since they seem to have the best print quality on the shirts.
After enough requests we added a few more designs. One is a version of the cargo bike shirt with an Xtracycle/longtail. While we won’t be able to create every type of bicycle out there, the Xtracycle was a seminal bike in the cargo bike revolution. I used one personally when I first started my photography career so it has a special place in my heart. I also added a “Bike Local. Buy Local” shirt, which fits in with one of the themes we’ve been exploring – how bikes can benefit small economies.
Thanks for all your help. As always, all sales help keep us on the road. We’re trying to get to New Zealand, so we need to sell lots of shirts. Order one today and have one for your bikey Halloween party or every day! If you have other products you think the design would be great for, let us know!
